A 22-year-old Calgary man is being sought by police in relation to an alleged armed robbery that took place last summer.

According to a release from the Calgary Police Service, Jonah Coy is believed to have been one of three suspects who had convinced a victim to go to one of their vehicles outside Cowboys Casino on July 14, 2019.

It is believed that the victim then had a gun pointed at him, with the suspects demanding his bank cards and PINs.

The victim reported the incident to a nearby police officer, which led to the arrest of two of the three suspects. The third managed to get away, though police now have warrants out for the arrest of Coy.

According to the release, Coy is charged with robbery with a prohibited firearm, unlawful confinement, unauthorized possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle, possession of a prohibited or restricted forearm with ammunition, careless use of a firearm, possession of a firearm without a license, and three counts of breaching a court order.
